    Visited this as part of a 1300 mile roadtrip with Bryag and Bax_ last weekend :rolleyes:

    I guess everyone knows the history of this iconic site...

    The Silos have been posted elsewhere by others, so I thought I'd put up a few pics of the other parts of the base...

    The Control Tower - sealed up tighter than a drum :mad:
